Score big with your gang by baking up these Beer-Soaked Buffalo Wings. We include the beer in the marinade and in the Buffalo sauce, so that every bite is full of flavor. They're going to love chowing down on these chicken wings!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 (12-ounce) cans beer
  • 1 (4-pound) package frozen chicken wings, thawed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup cayenne pepper sauce (see Note)
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
What To Do:
  1. Set aside 1/3 cup beer. Pour remaining beer into a large shallow dish. Add chicken wings, cover, and marinate at least 4 hours in refrigerator; drain wings.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line two large rimmed baking sheets with aluminum foil; coat foil with cooking spray.
  3. Season wings with salt, pepper and garlic, and place on baking sheets.
  4. Bake 30 minutes. Turn wings over and cook 25 to 30 more minutes, or until crispy and no pink remains.
  5. In a large bowl, combine cayenne pepper sauce, butter, and reserved 1/3 cup beer; mix well. Add chicken wings and toss until evenly coated. Serve immediately.

Be sure to use cayenne pepper sauce instead of regular hot pepper sauce because that would make these REALLY spicy!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I have eaten a few things made with beer and it gave it a distinctive flavor that I liked, but I don't drink beer,so I don't know what kind would be best for these buffalo wings. I think the beer you use could make it or break it, and to just say add beer makes the outcome kind of risky for me. Can someone suggest what beer to use?
